After taking down Christmas decorations this year, I was itching to change up some of the wall spaces in our house. I took down a gallery wall and had an empty space, so I decided to create some easy wreaths to hang there.

Here is what I used:

-A branch I found in the back yard that I cut to the correct size

-Three embroidery hoops in two different sizes (find them here)

-Faux greenery from Michael's; I bought three different kinds of greens that I liked


Directions: Take the hoops apart and just use the inner hoop. Cut the greens in smaller sections and use green wire to wrap the greens around the hoops. Use the twine to hang the hoops from the branch. Then use another piece of twine to hang the branch from a nail on the wall.

I love how it turned out! It feels wintery but not too Christmasy, and I just love adding greens anywhere I can.

In case you're wondering, we found that antique cart from a local barn sale. Isn't it cool?? I use it to store extra pillows and blankets in the family room. The blanket hanging out of the card is unavailable right now, but you can find a similar one here for $16.99.
